きむら (Kimura in Gunma)

きむら

The train arrived at Minakami station with an hour or so to spare. Waiting for the shuttle bus to the remote mountain hot spring would be no problem at the local cafe. But the allure of ramen is persistent, and when you put more than 1 ramen maniac in the vicinity of each other, it was impossible to resist.

This shop, like the crumbling old town it lives in, seems ancient.

Is it ironic that the old bill-of-health certificates look like something out of a zombie flick?

If the daruma's wish was for some horrid ramen, then I guess it makes sense.
